Happy Straw started as a project to find non-toxic, bio-degradable alternatives to plastic straws. Alternatives that will not impair your health, pollute the environment or endanger other species after being discarded. The brand uses different materials that all have their own qualities.
The bamboo straws by Happy Straw are made of 100% natural organically grown bamboo in Vietnam. No chemicals or harmful preservatives are used during production process. Pure organic bamboo is harvested, then washed, dried and hand cut into desirable length by their artisans. Bamboo is naturally antibacterial, anti-fungal and odor resistant.
STAINLESS STEEL STRAWS
Their stainless steel straws are made from food grade 304 stainless steel. They are very resistant to corrosion and made to last a life time. Unfortunately, they are not bio-degradable, but they do not need to be because you will not need to discard them. Just pass your Happy Straw on to the next generation!
BOROSILICATE GLASS STRAWS
The colorful borosilicate glass straws are shatter resistant, and toxin free. Borosilicate glass has super durability, therefor staying more resistant to breaking than other glass. Also, the colors stay brilliant after each use and wash.
WHY HAPPY STRAW?
When non reusable plastic straws reach the ocean, they never completely break down. They turn into microplastics rather than completely biodegrading, which poses a huge threat to ocean life. It is estimated that by the year 2050, we will have more plastic in the ocean than fish.
On top of the negative environmental impact of plastic straws, there are a number of personal health reasons to avoid plastic straws as well. Most single-use plastic straws are made from polypropylene which is a type of plastic commonly made from petroleum. Do you need more reason to avoid those nasty things?
Using Happy Straw is a small, yet powerful and meaningful action to take against plastic straws. Shop Happy Straw at Hutspot Rotterdam.
